website, c-span.org. jim is in orlando, florida. he's on our line for independents. jim, you're optimistic about the economy. why is that? caller: i'm optimistic after the election. i think that a lot of companies have been holding out hiring this year. i think it all comes back to the money. and when i say the money, a lot of the billionaires, when they see that their taxes are going from 14% to 36%, they're going to do whatever they can to make sure that the president looks bad as far as this year. when you look historically, the first quarter of the year is usually slow. we had a good first quarter. in the second two quarters, jobs have been anemic. i think the last two or three years, we slowly climbed out of this mess, and it will take, as clinton said, another four years to get out of it. but i do see some positives. host: jim, do you really think that business owners are going to risk profits and losses based on trying to make the president look bad? caller: i don't think business owners are. i think that big corporations that have billionaire stockholders -- if my taxes were going

in the storm. and i'm playing there are a lot of people out there like me. that's all i have to say. host: jim in massachusetts independent caller, good morning. caller: i agree with the guy in louisiana. and another thing i always notice that the voter suppression isn't being mentioned that much on fox. number two, also one of romney's sons are primarily investors in the voting machines. so let's hope we don't get another bush 2 like we did in florida where the supreme court is basically working for the corporations on top of that man tan to's genetically engineered modified food, waste water from coke's power prant. don't be surprised if cancer goes up and then everybody will be playing for obama care because the insurance companies will bankrupt everybody. here is your upper crust old witch old money that's basically blackmailing everybody with their taxpayer money for their vote. and if you think you're getting the impression that you're free, i i've got two word for you the property act. >> let's gock to the "washington post." host: chris on the democrats line. caller: good morning. i pra

of ohio. 5:30 p.m. eastern. now to jim next in franklin, pennsylvania, republican. caller: i highly disagree with s estimatee -- his that the benghazi affair is not the october surprise. i really believe if the electric knew all -- if the electorate knew all the facts, how could a president, the secretary of state, and the secretary of defense sit and watch what happened in real time and not send aid to those people, if everybody understood that is what happened. then they went out and made up a story that it was some unruly mob when it was clearly a planned attack by al qaeda. guest: i think there are a lot of problems with that. there were not watching in real time. i don't want to get into the specifics of the actual and got the attack or anything around it. however, i think there's something important to be done. the full story will be reported. there will be investigations both by the house of representatives and by the state department. republicans to control the house of representatives, by the way. we look forward to those things coming out. whether or not expect a robust su
energy right now. host: a question on twitter from jim writes -- guest: i'm sure autoworkers will love that but there is a thing called tariffs that make those cars pretty expensive. they look at the ability to serve a market more directly and more cheaply than over in china. you almost have to have the reverse argument. we want to build cars here and china wants to build them their. host: another call on the line. sheila is waiting. caller: hello? well, i'll tell you what. right now, i am so upset with the way the economy is going. obama is not hal ob how for coal. i do not like obamacare either because i am disabled and my husband is, too. he is 100% disabled as a veteran. i even asked my doctor about obamacare and he said it was going to be very bad for the patients and even for the doctor's. i am from a big military family. this thing on benghazi, it jsut really hit hard here. i am very upset because if that had been my son because he was in the military also i would be very upset. i am surprised that some of these families have not even come out more and spoken out about this situ
their base. host: jim is on the line. caller: i'm calling from dubuque, iowa. i'm in the first district and we have seen a huge shift over the last six months with the enthusiasm you described, the gap between republicans and democrats. there's two things i'm really interested in hearing from you about. with all the polling on social issues at stake in this election, which includes women's choice and the pro-life issue, or religious liberties. what i can tell you what we're seeing in the first district is a huge surge in women, especially catholic women who are changing their minds about voting like they did in 2008. i'm also interested in finding out if you can expand a little bit on the logic behind the des moines register for the first time in 40 years supporting a republican candidate. thank you. guest: thank you. by the way, i will be dubuque taking our grandkids to the water park, so i will enjoy your lovely city. i don't know why? the des moines register decided the way they did. but this is an election that i think has energized women voters. i don't think it is a blanket issue.
senators. his opponent said he votethe auo bailout was unamerican. host: jim on our ohio line. caller: i drive a jeep. i am a supporter of senator brown and our president. and i met you at a rally last year. and i was very sorry that of course. john, who i think you know pretty well, is no longer serving us. but i hope you will be back. i am -- in line with that, the redistricting issue, i wish she would speak a little bit to the pathology of how these districts are being gerrymandered and issued to an ohio. good luck to you. guest: i am supporting issue two. a citizen panel to redraw the congressional districts and the legislative districts. host: that is on the ballot as well? guest: it is. it takes the pen out of the hands of politicians, both democrats and republicans. so we can get districts that are inclusive of entire communities and other things to make sure we do not have a district that starts in northeastern ohio and goes all the way down to south central ohio. and includes -- it is basically drawn as a republican district, republicans controlled the pen, and redrew districts
from jim on twitter -- uses direct democracy by any other name is mob rule. guest: direct democracy is a wonderful thing and it is a terrible thing. it came about and the united states back at the turn of the last century because state legislatures in many states were just terribly corrupt. there were owned by corporations. mainly the railroad industry and the mining industry in western states. citizens had no voice. they couldn't achieve the reforms they wanted to achieve because there were contrary to the interests of these corporations. that we are dictating to state legislators with the should be doing. the initiative process can about any way that allows citizens to go around government and to reforms when government wouldn't do it. i think it is still there for that. i think in the states that have the initiative process, and remember that is only 24 of them, voters did not want to get rid of the initiative process, even if they know that the is the process is sometimes corrected. and it is definitely vulnerable to big money and vulnerable to corruption and all of these things
